Check the lower intake gasket again the new gaskets that are being use made out of plastic with rubber port seals sometimes don't seal right I still used gasket sealer with the new plastic gasket even if it has rubber seals. MY 4.2 v6 had that problem but I went ahead and replaced the head gaskets also just to cover all the bases. And my F-150 has 210,000 miles on it. Make sure you tight the bolts I know it probably calls for something like 8 ft lbs which to me is not tight enough. Double it.

Sorry im late with this,i couldnt seem to log on....The answer to your question is YES,there is a steel line under the intake with a short piece of rubber line attached to it and you can just about see it from the front of the intake with a light,it can leak and cause coolant to run off the back of the engine,The intake gasket set alone is about $40.00 and i dont know about the rubber line,i have seen it physically but havent changed one yet.Note the date of manufactor just incase,i bought an intake set for a 99 and the engine design was changed half way through...its not too hard to pull off the intake and re-install,you will need a 7mm socket for the coil packs,8mm socket for the fuel rail bolts and lower intake bolts and power steering bracket bolts and throttle bracket bolts,10mm socket for the intake bolts and alternator bolts and egr valve,and a large cresant wrench for the exhaust tube thats connected to the egr valve,flat screw driver for the air cleaner...and plenty of extensions with a swivel to be able to get to the back bolts of the intake....just incase you do it yourself this info could make it easier to gather tools.Its about a 3 1\2 to 4 hour job start to finish for the first time doing it,includes cleaning everything..Good luck

Check closely where is it leaking from. If its coming out between the engine block and the cylinder head, very urgent depending how much is leaking, other like radiator or water pump can be temporary fix with sealer you buy at auto parts store although one has to monitor their engine temperature moore closely. Keep in mind any water leaks will cause nothing but overheat the engine. Water flow through out entire engine and cool the most important parts, the cylinder head where most heat created and need to be cool, if not the head can warp cause the head not to seat properly to the engine block, reaction would cause poor compression, rough idles, poor gas mileage, poor performance and ect. You can still drive the vehicle as long you pay attention to the temperature guage and the smell of the engine. You can smell if the engine is running hot, so just keep extra water container with you just incase you run low on fluid. Try not to run straight water in the systems, water reach it boiling point quicker than antifreeze.

Testimonial: "Thanks! I'll keep an eye on the temperature gauge."
Is the fuel in the valley right under the fuel pump? If so, your fuel pump might have failed and is leaking out of the weep hole.
Other places to look would be the fuel filter seal and a bad o-ring in the fuel drain relief valve.
